Virtuoso 6.1.6 and KDE 4.9

Shortly after KDE 4.9 hits the net Virtuoso 6.1.6 follows. Virtuoso 6.1.6 comes with a ton of fixes, improvements and optimizations and it is highly recommended to update for the best Nepomuk experience.

Virtuoso 6.1.6 has been tested by the Nepomuk team in cooperation with OpenLink Software before its release. It is the recommended release for Nepomuk. This is not only true for KDE 4.9 but for any version before it.

Keeping Your GitHub Fork Up-To-Date

This is a quick tip: after forking a repository on GitHub sadly there is no button to easily fetch new commits from the original repository. So we have to do it manually. Luckily this is easy enough:

1. Add the original repository as a remote to your local clone:

$ git remote add openlink git://github.com/openlink/virtuoso-opensource.git

2. Now you can simply pull the changes from the original:

$ git checkout develop/6
$ git pull openlink develop/6

However, make sure you do not do a rebase pull with the pull as that would destroy any merges you did on your own fork.

3. Finally push them to your own fork:

$ git push origin develop/6

I am sure that for most git users this is trivial. I just wanted to clearly state that there is no difference when using GitHub. It does not provide us with any magic when it comes to fork updates.
